Man has a tendency to manipulate his surroundings, but doing so often leaves an imprint behind. Colombian contemporary artist John J. Bedoya explores this phenomenon, but not in a preachy, politically-charged way... just as an observation. He takes a good hard look at the decay of organic substance, but doesn't dwell on the implications. The show, Detrirus, opens Friday at the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery in Stamford.
Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery, 96 Bedford St., Stamford. (888) 861-6791. Reception: Fri., Sept. 6, 6-9 p.m. Through Oct. 31. flalvarezgallery.com
